SecurliCON VIRTUAL CYBERSECURITY CONFERENCE
January 27, 2017
Speaker – Allan Martin, the CTO of ABMartin LLC
Topic: The Hole in Your Data Security Strategy, structured and unstructured data protection techniques
In today’s marketplace, IT leaders spend a significant amount of time and money ensuring that their company’s data is secure. Even so, breaches are commonplace. In 2015 alone, the Identity Theft Resource Center reported that in the U.S. there were 781 large-scale data breaches.
The biggest reason? Access to data in non-production test environments. Test data is necessary to support application development, quality assurance, and other mission-critical activities. If this data is not secured internally and from external partners, it poses a huge security and compliance risk, not to mention significant costs.
In this discussion we will outline the essential steps that corporations should include within their overall security strategy to ensure all data; structured and unstructured, is protected.
